The Jaguars later signed him to a contract as an unrestricted free agent in March of 2015 and re-signed him this past March to a one-year contract.

In 2016, Walters appeared in 10 games for the Jaguars and caught 24 passes for 231 yards receiving and two touchdowns. He also contributed as a kick and punt returner.
